Phase N/A Results N/A

Trial Description

Cerebral infarction is the most common form of stroke (80% of strokes). Stroke is the first cause of acquired disability, and the 2nd cause of dementia and death. The only approved treatment in the first 4.5 hour is intravenous rt-PA thrombolysis (Actilyse ®) whose objective is recanalization of occluded artery and reperfusion of the brain parenchyma. Few patients are treated (1-5%) and they keep disability in 50-60% of cases. This handicap is mainly correlated to the final infarct size. The objective of neuroprotective treatments is to reduce the final size of the cerebral infarction.
The per-conditioning remote ischemic (Per-CID) showed a neuroprotective effect in cerebral ischemia by reducing the final size of cerebral infarction animal models. The per-CID corresponds, in cases of cerebral ischemia, to iterative ischemia realization of a member with a cuff. In humans, the per-CID has shown a cardioprotective effect in a randomized control trial involving 250 patients within 6 first hours of myocardial infarction and candidate for primary angioplasty.

Conditions

Interventions

  • Usual care Other
    ARM 1: Kind: Experimental
    Label: Without per-CID protocol
    Description: Usual care patients (thrombolysis or not).
  • Lower limb tourniquet Device
    Intervention Desc: Lower limb tourniquet will be put on half thigh. The protocol will include 4 cycles of inflation cuff 110 mm Hg above systolic blood pressure followed by 4 cycles of deflation in between. The total duration of per-CID protocol will be 40 minutes (4 phases of 5 minutes inflations' of and 4 phases of 5 minutes deflations').
    ARM 1: Kind: Experimental
    Label: With per-CID protocol
    Description: Usual care patients (thrombolysis or not ) with remote ischemic per-conditioning using an electronic tourniquet .
